Last month CJS celebrated the creativity of it’s staff and pupils for an entire week with it’s much anticipated annual Arts Week.
Below is a recount from one of our Year 6 pupils:
Over the course of Tuesday and Thursday, 12 Year 6 children – chosen by their teacher to work with the Jurassic coast resident artist– created 3 wall hangings themed around the song ‘What a wonderful World.’
Each of the groups planned their design onto fabric based on the lyrics ‘I see trees of green, red roses too, I see them bloom for me and you.’ The second group worked with the chorus ‘What a wonderful world!’ and the third group focused on ‘I see skies of blue, the bright of day and the sacred night.’ The children then stitched their design. The hangings have turned out incredibly.
The children worked with fabrics, materials, buttons and thread to make the designs look the best they possibly could. The materials were provided by the artist who they worked with over the 2 days. All of the children worked their socks off and are very proud of their work.
All of the designs will be hung up at the Priory.
